Year 5 Rowling are taught by Mrs C. Parker-Twells

Welcome to Class 5!

We are a class of 30 unique, kind pupils that love learning at Mosley!

Our class is named after the famous author, J.K Rowling, who we all love! We read one of her famous Harry Potter books during our time in year 5 and love writing about it.

Who helps us to learn?

 

This is our teacher, Mrs Parker-Twells. She is very smiley and loves having fun with learning! Her favourite part of the school day is Art and PSHE (Jigsaw) as she thinks it is very important to talk about emotions and feelings; she is also our mental health first aider in school!
Mrs Parker-Twells has been at Mosley since 2016 and has taught children in KS1 and KS2!

Information about our Class:

  • PE takes place on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure children come to school wearing their kit on these days.
  • We strongly encourage children to read regularly at home. Reads can be recorded in the reading diary by children themselves, but this must be signed by an adult to confirm. 
  • 'At home' reads are counted up on a Wednesday so that we can achieve our 'rainbow badges' in assembly. Each time we achieve 25 reads - we are awarded with a new badge!

  • Spellings are tested on Wednesday. Once tested, new spelling are given out ready to be tested the following Wednesday. 
  • Homework is given out on Wednesday and is due to be collected the following Wednesday. Homework is designed to take around 20 minutes in order for children to consolidate and practise their learning at home.
  • Times tables are tested every Friday. We use 'Times Table Rock Stars' at home and at school to develop our speed with times and divide questions!
  • Please arrive at school between 8:40am and 8:50am. Collection time for upper Key Stage Two children is 3:30pm.
  • Sometimes we participate in Forest School sessions on Thursday afternoons. These alternate half-termly with Science. You will be informed when Forest School sessions are going to take place.

 

We thoroughly enjoyed learning about Ancient Egypt last term. We now know so many facts, just ask us!
